The treatment you’re curious about and find the answers to the most commonly asked questions.

Q: What is RF microneedling?

A: RF micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with micro needling. It uses a device with tiny needles that penetrate the skin and delivers RF energy to heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and providing skin tightening and rejuvenation benefits.

Q: How does RF microneedling work?

A: RF micro-needling creates controlled micro-injuries to the skin with tiny needles that penetrate the skin's surface. These micro-injuries trigger the body's natural healing response, increasing collagen production and skin remodelling. Adding RF energy helps heat the deeper layers of the skin, promoting further collagen production and tightening of the skin.

Q: Can the procedure be combined with other treatments? 

Yes, fractional RF works very well but can be combined with other complementary therapies for even better results.


It can be combined with Fractional Lasers and PRP in acne scar repair. 


In anti-aging treatment, it can be combined with anti-wrinkle injections, fillers and different levels of laser resurfacing.

Q: What are the benefits of RF microneedling?

A: RF micro-needling has several benefits, including:

  1. Skin tightening and rejuvenation: The RF energy stimulates collagen production, leading to tighter and more youthful-looking skin.

  2. Improved texture and tone: RF micro-needling can help improve the texture and tone of the skin, reducing the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.

  3. Minimal downtime: RF micro-needling is a minimally invasive procedure with little to no downtime, making it a convenient option for many people.

  4. Suitable for various skin types: RF micro-needling is safe and effective for various skin types and tones.

Q: What areas can be treated with RF microneedling?

A: RF micro-needling can treat various body areas, including the face, neck, chest, hands, and body. It is commonly used to target areas with loose or sagging skin, wrinkles, and textural irregularities.

Q: How long does an RF microneedling treatment take?

A: The duration of an RF microneedling treatment can vary depending on the size of the treatment area and the specific device used. On average, a treatment session can take  60 minutes, including preparation and numbing time.

Q: Is RF microneedling painful?

A: RF micro-needling is generally well-tolerated, but discomfort may be experienced during the procedure. Most providers apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area before the procedure to minimize discomfort. The sensation during the treatment can vary from mild discomfort to a slight tingling or heat sensation.

Q: How many RF micro-needling treatments are recommended?

A: The recommended number of RF micro-needling treatments can vary depending on the individual's skin condition and treatment goals. A series of 3 to 4 treatments, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart, is recommended for optimal results. Maintenance treatments may be recommended to maintain the results.

Q: What is the downtime after RF micro-needling?

A: The downtime after RF micro-needling is minimal compared to more invasive procedures. Most people experience redness, mild swelling, and/or pinpoint bleeding immediately after the treatment, which typically subsides within a few hours to a day. Some mild peeling or flaking of the skin may occur in the days following the treatment.

Q: What precautions should I take after RF micro- needling?

A: After RF micro-needling, it's essential to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your provider, which may include:

  1. Avoid sun exposure for a few days, and use sunscreen with a high SPF outdoors.

  2. Patients should avoid harsh skincare products, exfoliation, and hot showers for a few days.
